State- of- the- art safety technology
In the factory as well as in the process automation, a trend for increasingly complex, decentralized applications has become apparent. One of the big challenges in the safety field is the most efficient possible coupling of various safety components. For this purpose SSP provides with the Safety Simplifi er simple and flexible solutions: The safe coupling via wireless or safe CAN connection. Regardless which solution you choose, in the maximum configuration up to 16 participants with up to 256 inputs and/or outputs can be securely networked together.
State- of- the- art safety technology
Safe wireless network and repeater function
Up to 16 Safety Simplifiers can be linked via the secure wireless network. The repeater function implemented as standard ensures optimum process reliability. Each Safety Simplifier shares the available safety information with all other Safety Simplifiers within its range. Two modules can communicate at a distance of up to 100 meters. For longer distances or in unfavorable environmental conditions, additional Safety Simplifiers can act as repeaters or a wired CAN connection can be used.
Safe CAN network
If, for example, up to 16 Safety Simplifiers are networked via safe CAN communication, each Safety Simplifier in the system has access to all existing safety information of the other participants. The cable length of up to 250 m enables the application in large plants with longer distances.
Safe combined networking of wireless and CAN
If safe wireless and CAN network are combined, the wiring effort can be reduced. The advantages of each individual type of communication are also available as combined network. In applications where a process-safe wireless connection is not possible, the CAN line of the the Safety Simplifier can be connected. In a system of 16 Safety Simplifiers it can be freely selected which units communicate via CAN or wireless connection.
Mesh network for high availability
Via a fully automatic mesh network with repeater function, each Safety Simplifier shares its global information with all participants within its range. In order to achieve high reliability value, each Safety Simplifier reliably passes on its own information and that received from the other Safety Simplifiers.
Software diagnostics for reliable applications
Diagnosis is especially essential for wireless security technology. The free software, Simplifier Manager, has implemented an expandable wireless quality diagnostics. This function makes it easy to check existing networks and to lay out new systems simply and without interference.
Independent wireless at 2.4 Ghz
The safe wireless communication of the Safety Simplifier works without any intervention in IT. The Safety Simplifier does not require any external repeater, but builds up its system independently. 16 channels, on a frequency of 2.4 GHz, are available for optimal implementation.
Large operating ranges
With the Safety Simplifier, very large ranges can be realized. The range between two participants is up to 100 meters. The integrated repeater function effectively extends the range. Safety Simplfier repeater modules can also be integrated to increase the range or to optimize the mesh network.
Thanks to the modular design, up to 16 Safety Simplifi er can be decentrally distributed on your robot cell and perform all safe and unsafe control tasks, where necessary. If additional doors, robots or machines are subsequently integrated, they can be easily equipped with the Safety Simplifi er and connected to the safety circuit. Thanks to the IP65 protection class of the Safety Simplifi er, an external safety PLC or even a control cabinet for the safety technology are no longer necessary for your robot cell. The wiring effort of the safety components is reduced to a minimum using the safe wireless communication..
